*RCMP warning snowmobilers of booby traps! *
If you, or anyone in your family rides a snowmobile, this is scary. 
The RCMP is warning of booby traps being set up, targetting sledders in Ontario. 
The one they found was in the Cornwall area where a rope had been strung across a bridge, spanning the trail. 
A couple of snowmobilers were able to escape injury by ducking when their sled came into contact with the rope. 
Police believe this wasn't an accident, and the rope was intentionally placed there. The Cornwall Regional Task Force says one of their officers was on a trail near Bainsville when he was nearly clotheslined by a rope strung across the trail. It happened recently near the Wood’s Creek Bridge. Police say the officer was able to duck and avoid the rope after it hit the machine. The CRTF says it’s clear the device was put there to serious hurt or kill someone. The trap has since been cut down and destroyed by police.

Here is a reminder of the senseless death that happened due to unmarked obstructions: 

"My three and a half year old son was killed while we were enjoying a leisurely ride on our ATV up at the cottage, near Haliburton this Easter weekend past. We struck a near invisible chain that was strung across a road – unmarked. Hunter died in my arms and I learned later that his neck was broken instantly by the chain as it cut across us. He was wearing a helmet but it didn’t matter. His death was senseless and preventable. There was no indication whatsoever that we ended up on private property. Had the owner of the road simply marked or flagged that chain in some way, Hunter would be alive today.

Every year there are numerous fatalities and serious injuries resulting from collisions with unmarked chains and cables. People enjoying recreational activities such as riding snowmobiles and ATVs are unnecessarily at risk. The purpose of this website is to help create a larger awareness of such avoidable tragedies by having property owners use ‘common sense’ when erecting barriers to their land/roadway entrances and realize that otherwise these dangerous and potentially lethal barriers are actually quite ineffective from a security perspective.

If we can save one life by encouraging property owners to properly identify their entrances then Hunter’s death would not be in vain.

Currently there is no municipal by-law in place making it illegal to not properly mark or flag chains, fences & other such barriers. We’ve been made aware there are several potential challenges in establishing such a by-law, including the issue of enforceability. However that in itself is not a reason not to pursue it. How many people had to drown before it became a criminal offence to not have a pool or pond properly fenced in on private property – this scenario is not dissimilar. We hope to gain the support of the general public and recreational organizations to lobby the various levels of government to take a closer look, see what can be done and perhaps one day make the by-law a reality. As a father who lost his only son, there is no better way to honour him."- jason@commonsensefence.com
